8 -November 01, 2012 YoHr Hometown Newspaper News Outlook AMERICAN,FFA DEGREE CELEBRATES ACADEMIC AND PROFESSIONAL EXCELLENCE I[ Submitted by Mayor Gary M. Hunt What a beautiful fall we are having here in Bath County! We are so fortu- nate to live in such a pic- turesque location. I want to update you on some events that have trans- pired over the past few months. We are .continu- ing to work on our down- town area to make it as attractive as possible for our citizens and potential businesses. Twenty-three businesses participated in the Store-Front painting project. The ARC grant paid for the paint and the store owner provided the labor. I think this made a notable difference in our downtown. The welcome sign at the bottom of the hill on Highway 36 was also completely paid for with an ARC grant. I have received many favorable comments concerning this addition. The U.S. 60/ Highway 111 Sewer Exten- sion Project has now been completed and an addi- tional 105 homes now have access to public sewer. I want to thank all those homeowners for their pa- tience and understanding throughout this past year. We are always looking for ways to improve our environment and living conditions. The city has received a mini-grant to purchase banners for our light poles throug ut downtown. This shduld be accomplished by the first of the year and should add a nice touch to our historic town. We have also received another ARC grant in the amount of $7,650 which will be used to do something I mafional DVD will assist our Industrial Authority in its task of luring new busi- ness to our area. Third- ly, and the part I'm very excited about, the funds will be used to create and publish a "Bath County Activity Booklet". This booklet will contain pages on Bath County history, landmarks, famous people, etc. The book's pages are being created by the K-5 teachers at Owingsville Elementary and Cross- road's Elementary. Once the booklet is completed, all students in grades K-5 will be given one to take home and complete with their parents. There will be extra copies that will be made available at various locations throughout the county. It is important that we understand our past as we venture into our future. We should be receiving an- other grant early next year for $10,000 which will be used for consultation and direction in establishing a "Bath County Founda- tion". This would provide a much needed source of funding for a large vari- ety of needs throughout our county. 'The city sent a team of local individuals to Berea College Brushy Fork Institute last month to learn more about this endeavor. Counties that have established founda- tions such as this have seen many positive re- sults. I will share much more about this project in a later update. Even in an economy as tight as ours, grant money is still available. I will continue to write and submit pro- er Tim Bailey started this twenty-six years ago and it has benefited hundreds of Bath County children over those years during the Christmas season. We will also be honoring our county, s veterans on that night. Veterans are encouraged to wear some- thing symbolic of their service (uniform, hat, pin, medal, etc.). We cannot and will not EVER forget the servic of our veter- ans who have served to keep our country free. It should be a great night of entertainment and fun as we help out this charity and pay tribute to our vet- erans. The reception be- gins at 6 p.m. and the mu- sic at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at City Hall for a $25 donation per ticket. November 6th is Election Day. I encourage all Bath County registered voters to exercise their right on that day to choose those who will be making decisions that impact their lives from tl e local level to the national level. I have a simple philosophy .... If you don't vote, don't complain! I continue to feel blessed and honored to serve as the Mayor of Owingsville. Franklin D. Roosevelt once said, "The only limit to our realiza- tion of tomorrow will be our doubts of today. Let us move forward with strong and active faith." Our city and county has many challenging and exciting tomorrows ap- proaching and I'm looking forward to each and every one of them. As we draw near to the Thanksgiving Each year, the National FFA Organization is proud to honor the FFA members who show the utmost dedi- cation to the organization through their desire to develop their potential for premier leadership, per- sonal growth and career success through agricul- tural education. That hon- or, the American FFA De- gree, is bestowed upon a select group of individuals for years of academic and professional excellence. Aaron Jacob Smith Wat- son, an FFA member rep- resenting the Bath County FFA Chapter in Owings- vine was selected to join that exclusive list and was awarded the American FFA Degree at the 85th National FFA Convention and Expo in Indianapolis. The convention is known as the largest student gath- ering in the United States and was held Oct. 24-27, 2012.
